Our Ancient Earth – Diatomaceous Earth, is a new brand from Ingrid Dimock at City Chicks in Brisbane. City Chicks is a popular City Farm concept for city families to visit that sells heritage poultry, native bees and an array of sustainability products. City Chicks is well known and highly regarded in the community, being regular speakers at major gardening events, libraries, schools and in the media.
Ingrid knows her stuff about chooks and found that using Diatomaceous Earth (DE) as an 100% organic alternative to chemicals made their chickens, ducks, geese, their dog Molly, resilient, parasite free and healthy. Further research then showed that Diatomaceous Earth could help our Human bodies in the same way.
What Then? They tried to get some to sell to their clients. It was hard to find, came in massive dusty bags that were difficult to handle with little to no information about what it was or nutrition facts. They felt frustrated. That’s when they decided enough is enough! In 2019 – Our Ancient Earth was born! They created a fresh, upmarket design on bags that would sit well on the shelves, be easy to carry and appeal to customers with information about the 100’s of uses for this product. They made the product clear, informative and affordable.
We are looking for wholesalers to help share the magic of this product. If you are a wellness coach, health shop, organic product supplier, pet shop, produce store, dog groomer, cat club, horse club etc email us at [email protected] for details and a price list.

A Bit About How it Works
Diatomaceous Earth is an organic ancient powdery silica rich mineral that is found in fossilized deposits under dried up freshwater lakes. It is not to be confused with the DE used in pools which is dangerous to humans & pets. The mineral is the result of a pile of dead diatoms or single cell algae that contain silica. The shells of these diatoms are so hard that they craze parasites upon contact dehydrating them making it a terrific product for parasite control internally & externally.
Horse owners have seen the fly breeding cycle reduced by using DE. Ants can be reduced using DE, cockroaches, fleas, bed bugs, lice & mites also. Internally, in pets & people, the DE acts like a broom gently sweeping the digestive tract clean from toxins & bad gut bacteria promoting good health & immune support. Our DE has up to 96% silica. That’s the stuff to help grow luscious hair, nails and skin.
